Accessing Web Application Report via API without first saving as xml document

I'm trying to automate a scan that will look specifically for newly discovered vulnerabilities and later use them to automatically create bug reports.  Earlier, my plan was to use the API to trigger a scan, and use the id it returns to obtain the results using "download/was/wasscan/<id>" but the output from that call won't tell me which results are new and which have existed in previous scans.  If I use the "View Report" option from the Quick Actions menu of one of the Web Applications in the Web Applications menu, I obtain a report with all of this information, however, in order to obtain this information through the API, I need to create a report that is saved in the Reports menu, and then make a second call to download the results from that report.  I'm looking for a way I can do this without saving the results somewhere because this scan will be triggered every time someone on the team runs a build of our code.
